Automatic Store Feeds v3.0

for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2

AUTOMATED STORE FEEDS SYSTEM v3.0 8/13/2006 This contribution is a combination of the Froogle (Google base), Yahoo, Bizrate, and the new Bidhopper Store Feed contributions plus the added admin configuration group for easy install. This contribution was created as an improvement to the existing 'store feeders' contribution with the addition of tons of new features including the new BidHopper.com feed. It is now VERY customer friendly. This contribution has been tested to work in all unmodified and modified versions of oscommerce MS2.2. Credit goes to original creditors of each corresponding module, especially David from AdvancedStyle.com who created the much needed admin configuration section for easy install. --------------------- VERSION NOTES: --------------------- v3.0: 8/13/2006: Bruce Hakala /catalog/admin/feeders.php - customer friendly layout, introduction, and multiple column setup in preparation for future store feed contributions to be incorporated. - multiple columns including quick links for each provider to RUN FEED, DOWNLOAD (if file exists), SIGN-UP, and LOGIN. - description added for each provider and indicator if store feed service is free or fee based. - trouble shooting section. /catalog/admin/froogle.php , yahoo.php, bizrate.php: - updated file headers to exclude the CATEGORY column, since Google informed me that they are no longer using it. - trim out HTML and ' from product descriptions IF exist (common with the WYSIWYG editors) - query update to ignore any products with a $0 or NULL price, commonly found in the 'CALL FOR PRICE' contribution. Works even without it. - query update to ignore products with status of 0 (turned off). /catalog/bidhopper.php: - query update to ignore any products with a $0 or NULL price, commonly found in the 'CALL FOR PRICE' contribution. Works even without it. - query update to ignore products with status of 0 (turned off). - updated coding to dynamically pull store URL, so it no longer requires opening and configuring file. --------- I welcome all comments, suggestions and feedback to improve upon this system. Enjoy ~ Bruce
